Harry is back at the Dursleys' again! This time though, demons from his imprisonment at Malfoy Manor haunt him, sleeping and waking. Harry has been at the bottom for a long time. How will he ever rise from the ashes, for Harry must rise from the ashes if he hopes to fulfill the Prophecy... He must rise if he wishes to live, for sometimes, Death is as appealing as Life... *Sequel to Loss of Innocence*
A mainly internal monolouge from Ron's point of view concerning the events following in the year after the Final Battle. Caimen, Ron and Hermione's oldest son and Harry's Godson, is pointing at a picture taken of Ron, Hermione, and Harry moments after the three had graduated from Hogwarts. Ron is looking at the picture on the other page of the album, of two grave stones surrounded by a field of wildflowers and a weeping willow.
Harry is stuck at Privet Drive and has much to think about. A crazed wizard out to kill him. The death of his godfather and friend. The Prophesy looming in front of him. And not even one note from his friends. That's been Harry's summer holiday thus far, so can you blame him for wanting it to end? But should Harry really be looking forward to a year filled with surprises of all kinds and not all of them good? *HP sixth year fic following OotP and not incorporating HBP*
